Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.  A much drier air flow is reaching Cape Cod this morning as evidenced by the mood of the birds waking to yet another beautiful a.m. on this little sand bar the Last Great Ice age created over 11,500 years ago…  Ah, FOX “NEWS”, we love ya!  Jump on that hate train fueled by racism regarding the recent firing of Shirley Sherrod, of the USDA, who was “muddied” by another false report by the “fair and balanced” fixed news network reporting that the “black woman” with held funds for a white owner years ago, suggesting that she was a racist herself.  Nothing could be further from the truth, she was merely making a comparison that was designed to be enlightening to ALL…that the color of one’s skin does not matter and that SHE had overcome, perhaps, some old demons of her own when it came to the resentments that are still so deep within black America of how the “white man” that she was talking to made her feel less than, i.e., that he was superior to her.  In other words, she evolved, while Shaun Hannity and the rest of the clowns over at FOX NEWS, and the right wing blogs that feed them, devolved even further down the rat hole that “fixed news” truly IS.  To quote Mr. Ben Jealous, again, the President of the NAACP, in regard to this slick republican strategist move (see word doctors.com), “with regard to the initial media coverage of the resignation of USDA official Shirley Sherrod, we have come to the conclusion we were snookered by FOX NEWS and the Tea Party Activist, Andrew Brietbart into believing she had harmed white farmers because of racial bias…Having reviewed the full tape, spoken to Ms. Sherrod, and, most importantly, heard the testimony of the white farmers mentioned in this story, we now believe the organization that edited the documents did so with the intention of deceiving millions of Americans.”  Ben Jealous appeared on the “Rachel Maddow Show”, airing every week night at 9 p.m. EST on MSNBC, and made these comments that throw a flood light onto lies that, when exposed, shrink back into the darkness from which they came… He went on to say, “I am very sorry this happened, for it should not have happened, when we look at what tea party activist Brietbart was doing, slicing and dicing the video tape, manipulating the structure and content of this poor woman (who served her country with honor and distinction) and what FOX and the Tea Party tried to create, when you look at that, it is very disturbing.”  This was perhaps, an example of how fearful many in this country are of the right wingnut jobs that depend on lies, intimidation and hate to fuel their policies that mirror the same.  This was a monumental moment in this country’s history, even if we don’t all recognize it as that right now.  For this was a woman who, with her soul bared, exposed her own shortcomings as to how she felt while helping a land owner keep his land, when only a hundred, or less, years ago, her ancestors faced similar degrading circumstances and she was merely saying that she recognized the pain, she could empathize, she could show COMPASSION–a dirty word to the p.o.h.n., their handlers, the corporations and the followers of such a cult born in hatred, ignorance, intolerance and violence.  This was a transformational woman, who, if our eyes were open enough, showed us the way out of that hatred and out of the cave that Plato described so well in “The Republic”.  So FOX NEWS, enjoy your stay in the darkness of that cave, we’ll leave the LIGHT on for ya!  GOD’S SPEED to the GULF, all of the people, SEA TURTLES, DOLPHINS, WHALES and BROWN PELICANS and marsh lands therein…may the miracle happen yesterday! Have a nice day folks.  Peace~M
